    I bought my first Tarmac 22 in 2007. I've now purchased a total of five Tarmacs, three for our own use (two 22s and a 25), and two as gifts for others.

    These suitcases are very well made. They are quite lightweight, roll easily, and are durable in my experience. Eagle Creek provides a lifetime warranty. I had one problem with a handle, and Eagle Creek quickly fixed it by sending me a new handle and help over the phone to install it, all at no charge. Great customer service!

    The older Tarmac 22 was a brilliant design. The inside of the lid contained two very useful compartments, each about 3" deep and covered by a mesh lining. The larger of these compartments kept my shirts and slacks in a neat stack, protected from wrinkling. The smaller of the compartments held my sox and toiletries. The outside of the lid had two more compartments, the large of which could hold a bulky fleece jacket, even when the inside of the lid was fully packed.

    I have never had a suitcase that makes it so easy to keep clothes from wrinkling. The 2007 design made it easy to organize your clothes inside the suitcase and easy to access things from the outside as well.

    Unfortunately, Eagle Creek couldn't leave their design alone. The 2011 Tarmac 22, which I just bought for a daughter, is no longer special. Eagle Creek removed their earlier compartments. The main compartment is now bigger, so the lid is much thinner (less than half its former depth), and those useful compartments in the lid almost disappeared. There is now one inside compartment and one outside compartment on the lid. You can still put some clothing on the inside to keep it wrinkle free. But if you use that depth (about 1.

    I've critically reviewed various Eagle Creek products before, but I always keep buying them. The quality of manufacture (in Vietnam) is excellent, but the constantly changing product specifications are bewildering and annoying. Two other reviewers have gone into that, so I won't repeat it. I just want to point out that the product dimensions advertised on the Eagle Creek website and on Amazon are incorrect. The product size advertised is the carry-on legal 14 x 22 x 9, however what arrives is clearly labeled 14 x 22 x 10, which is not strictly legal for airline carry-on. If you feel strongly about playing by the rules, knowing that your luggage is over carry-on size is vexing, even if the airline usually lets you get away with it. The Pack-it cubes really don't fit as the Eagle Creek illustration suggests. The cubic inch interior space advertised is also different than shown on the tag attached to the luggage. The 18" shirt folding Pack-it is really excellent, but it doesn't fit against the back wall of the luggage as shown. It sits much higher on the interior tubes which contain the handle. The tubes are very solid and create three long rectangular spaces, on either side and between the tubes, useful space but not as shown. The ad copy needs to be updated, and the Pack-it illustration needs to more fairly show how the Pack-it cubes fit. That aside, I like the bag and kept it. The redesigned lid that opens book-style contains about 2" of space that is perfect for carrying a raincoat or dirty laundry. I'm glad that EC eliminated the dedicated "shoe box" because I think one open compartment is more versatile than a lot of little spaces presumed to be useful by some luggage designer.Read more ›

    I purchased this bag to replace my six-year-old Travelpro Crew 2 bag which had finally given out after about 600 flights. The Amazon reviews of the new model Travelpro indicated that it had lost some of what made it so useful, so I decided to try the Eagle Creek.

    The bag is well made, but has a basic design flaw that surprised me. My goal with bags in this class is to be able to get as much into them as I can, enough so I can take a three or four day business trip and still avoid stowing luggage. Instead of being rectangular, the Eagle Creek bag's sides narrow toward the top. This results in a tapered look your might like (more tapered than the Amazon photo might suggest) but means you give up cubic inches inside. The bottom of the bag is 14 inches wide, but because of the tapering, the width at the top is only about 9 inches. The result: Folded shirts, for example, get crumpled, and there is just less room inside.

    Additionally, if, like me, you like to put your soft briefcase/laptop bag on top of your rollaboard, looping the briefcase handle over the telescoping handle of the rollaboard so you have a single tall unit to pull through airports, etc., forget it. The tapered top means that instead of having a nice flat, stable surface onto which to place your briefcase, you've got a rounded surface that automatically makes your briefcase tip over either left or right.

    I returned it, bought the new (Crew 8) Travelpro 22, and regained the space, stability and utility I'd enjoyed before.
